Stalled legislation would have addressed cyberbullying
Rep. Dan Kelley lashed out last week in his weekly “Kelley at the Capitol” column when a bill intended to deal with cyberbullying failed to pass the final “funnel” date in the Iowa House this session.
“The bill was the result of the governor’s anti-bullying conference last fall,” he said. “I’m very disappointed it hasn’t moved forward. It had support from the governor [and] support from a majority in the House. It had the support of the Senate.”
Kelley, who formerly served on the House Education Committee, said he understood the bill would allow school officials to deal with bullying inflicted upon students away from the traditional classroom and school settings. He said cyberbullying conducted outside of the classroom could be addressed.
